The purpose of this toolbox is to allow the application of extended statistical models generated by the CUBIST (TM) or JMP (TM) software for the moment to a set of auxiliary input parameters, thereby bypassing the need to i) manually calculate the equations using Raster calculator; ii) use a grid-to-point conversion process prior to applying the prediction model in the statistical software itse
In November 2008, an $18 million grant has been obtained from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) to map most parts in Sub-Sahara Africa, and make all Sub-Saharan Africa data available. From this grant there are also funds for coordinating global efforts and for the establishment of a global consortium. Several institutions have assumed a leading role in this effort and have made substantial financial and in-kind contributions.
